UFC 171 is just a few hours away, but let's not talk about that for a moment and focus on some good ol' fashioned Twitter call-outs. Lightweight Michael Johnson (15-8), now ranked #11 in the UFC's official rankings, has won his last 3 and went to Twitter to not only seek a fight with former title challenger Nate Diaz, but also call him a "scared little bitch":
If Johnson wants a top 10 opponent next then this is a pretty good match-up for him. Diaz is ranked 6th and is far less likely to be as passive in his stand-up as Melvin Guillard was last week. We know of Diaz's defensive wrestling deficiencies, but his submission skills could pose problems for Johnson, who has lost 6 career fights by submission.
Nate has not yet responded to Johnson's tweet, but if you're a fan of the Diaz brothers you're pretty much hoping that this escalates into at least a back-and-forth Twitter war, even if no actual UFC fights comes out of it.
